The Church and Deaf People examines Jurgen Moltmann's ecclesiology from the specific perspective of deaf people, who form a minority group within our society and who have been marginalized and effectively oppressed.
Inspired by his contact with deaf people (after his first wife became profoundly deaf) and mindful of the example of his deaf grandmother, Roger Hitching sensitively examines the history and present experience of deaf people in relation to Moltmann's radical ecclesiology.
Roger Hitching has an M.Th. from King's College, London (1991) and Ph.D. from London Bible College (2002). His concern for deaf people arose when his wife, Jackie, became profoundly deaf. He now provides mentoring services and advice on theological and pastoral matters.
